NEW: The Plunge or Pay Challenge!
Have you been dealing with that “certain” family member that has had you on holiday edge? Need to call out that friend or co-worker who challenged you all of 2019? Maybe your “crew” needs to level up the fun for 2020? Nominate them in the “PLUNGE OR PAY CHALLENGE!”
How it works: Challenge them to either “Plunge” with you at the 2020 Pelican Plunge event or if they’re a soft-shell sell out, they can opt to “Crab Out” of the event with an easy donation to the children’s charity.
As a bonus, they can also attend the Pelican Plunge on the sideline with warm gumbo, raffle prizes, and all plunge-party festivities.
